When Clara falls in love with Fabrizio Nacarelli, she is transformed by the experience, and, said Piazza director, Stacey Driskell, Brianna is "extremely proud" to bring the character of Clara to the CCT stage.
At USA, Brianna studies Vocal Music Performance and Instrumental Music Education. As to her stage performances, she was recently cast as Wednesday Addams in the "Addams Family" with Theatre USA, as Esmerelda in the USA Opera and Musical Theatre's production of "The Bartered Bride" and was part of the Mobile Opera Chorus in "Madama Butterfly."
